DSM showcases unique approach to support consumer health and wellness choices at FiE 2015

At FiE, DSM will launch its innovative health benefit platform, ‘Improve Your Digestion,’ which is a unique approach to creating products for improved digestion

Consumers increasingly look for food, beverages and dietary supplements that address their particular health concerns, such as improving digestion or cutting down on sugar intake.

At this year’s FiE, DSM (stand 6I5/6) brings its range of digestive solutions, highlighting nutritional and functional ingredients and enzymes backed by science to support digestive health. This allows products to be tailored to popular consumer requirements. Visitors will also be able to gain insight into DSM’s latest solutions on sugar reduction, particularly in dairy, as well as see and taste an extensive range of food and beverage concepts.

At FiE, DSM will launch its innovative health benefit platform, ‘Improve Your Digestion,’ which is a unique approach to support customers interested in creating products for improved digestion.

Digestive health and wellness are one of consumers’ top concerns, and is one of the key nutritional health benefits expected from foods and beverages. So far, probiotics have been a popular solution. However, DSM’s new health benefit platform extends to a complete portfolio that also includes fibres, enzymes and vitamins, proven by new science to enhance the digestive system.

’Improve Your Digestion’ is a one-stop shop combining scientific studies, applications expertise, regulatory knowledge and consumer insights – all easily accessible to help DSM customers differentiate their product ranges with customised solutions for digestive health. For example, the DSM portfolio includes Tolerase L – an enzyme that facilitates the breakdown of lactose, and OatWell oat-beta glucan soluble fibres for improved digestion.

Visitors will also be able to gain insight into the latest trends in sugar reduction. DSM’s Global Insight Series on sugar reduction explores consumer preferences and requirements towards sugar in general, as well as specifically in dairy. The reports aim to help manufacturers ensure their offering addresses the consumer needs of the future. In light of this, DSM will showcase its sugar reduction solutions for the dairy industry, including enzymes and cultures that help to create a healthy product without compromising on taste.

At FiE, DSM will also highlight its premix capabilities offered through Fortitech Premixes, the one-stop source for food, beverage and supplement manufacturers looking at fortification as a way to differentiate their products from the competition.

Visitors will be able to find out more about DSM’s digestive health, sugar reduction solutions and more by interacting with the extended product offering on stand and sampling a variety of products and prototypes made with its ingredients. DSM’s sample products include

  • chocolate chip cookies with OatWell and multivitamins from Fortitech Premixes
  • crispy hearts with OatWell
  • chocolate milk drink 0% with Maxilact lactase, fibres and no added sugar
  • high protein yoghurt energy shots with DelvoFresh
  • lactose-free vanilla custards with savoury MultiRome and Maxilact
  • par-baked buns with DSM’s latest innovation BakeZyme Go Pure and Panamore for improved dough stability and bread quality.

Delegates can also join the DSM team for its happy hour from 16:00, taking place on 1 and 2 December, offering champagne and healthy snacks. For more information on the Global Insight Series, visit www.dsm.com/food/whatsnew.
